Shannon Massey


I’m a freelance writer, filmmaker, and a single mom. I work as a professional script doctor/ghostwriter for clients around the world. When I’m not mumming or writing you’ll probably find me on the side of a mountain climbing or with a tank strapped to my back scuba diving.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
Whatever surface my laptop is on haha Right now it is my lap, in the dark, as I try to comfort my oldest and get him back to sleep.
When did you first start writing?
As soon as I learned how to string words together on paper :laugh: I recently found one I wrote when I was about 5. My dog Snickers grew unicorn wings and we flew to an island with blue dinosaurs. I began taking my writing seriously in high school. I published my first poem at 16 and first short story at 17.
